Happy Birthday Ted Williams!!
Today is Ted Williams’ birthday.
Arguably the greatest hitter of all-time, any player that collects multiple batting titles or maintains an average close to .350 for a lengthy time is compared to Williams.
Williams is the standard for hitting greatness – yet nobody has come close to eclipsing what he has done in the sport of baseball. A lifetime, .344 hitter, Williams captured six batting titles during his playing days, and amazing had seven seasons in which he finished with a .350 batting average or better.
Williams was a 17-time All-Star, and a 2-time MVP winner for the Boston Red Sox.
And while he did not make a splash during World Series play, Ted Williams was the rare kind of player that was able to take center-stage while not playing on it.
Happy Birthday to ‘The Splendid Splinter’!!
